  1. I'm having something odd happening. I'm running FMS18 on a server on my LAN. When I run admin console on that machine, everything is as it should be. SSL certificate is installed, valid license, expected databases are open. When I access via another computer on the LAN, using IP address:16000/admin-console, I am able to login and it shows the server is running BUT no databases are there, license shows as expired and there is no installed SSL certificate. In the past, I've had issues where firewall software prevented accessing the console over my LAN - but I've never had a situation wher
  2. I'm trying to upload a new solution to FMS. When I attempted to connect using the saved credentials, it threw the error "Invalid name/password. Please try again." Unfortunately, the login pane was grayed out, so I could not make any changes. So, I went into Keychain Access and deleted the credentials. Now, there are no saved credentials, but I am still unable to access the login pane. I see my server in Local Hosts, the IP address is correct, and I can access the Admin Console. But I can't log in to upload. I have managed to lock myself out of my own server. How embarrassing is that? FMS
  3. Have been fighting my way uphill in getting an SSL certificate, and I'm almost there. But now: - I used the fmsadmin command to generate my server request, but when I copy the hash out of serverRequest.pem and send it up to GeoTrust, the import fails with the message country code is not valid. Anybody know where to set the country code in FMS14?
  4. What's the latest version of FMP / FMPA that gets along well w FMS16? I'm in a workplace where I have access to version upgrades, but we're working with files hosted on Server v16.

  7. Hi - I've had something odd happen a few times after uploading a local file to Filemaker Server. The server instance is being hosted by Soliant in their cloud, but I'm assuming this is not an issue of their particular configuration. I had enabled the fmapp privilege for appropriate privilege sets before uploading. It worked at first, but then later, users were unable to access the hosted file. I discovered that the fmapp extended priv was disabled for their priv set. I thought maybe I hadn't set it when I thought I did. However, today - the same thing happened with my full
  8. LS, Does anyone know how to configure parallels so that files are visible in the host? I can see the files on my own mac running paralles, but other machines in the network only see the host. No files show up. TIA, Joost
  9. I use a local solution database with layouts and scripts only and data files are hosted in FMS16 under OSX. I've created a container field on one of the hosted database tables, the storage settings are set to "Store container data externally" and "Open storage". From the solution file, with my full privileged admin account, I can right-click on the container field, select "Import file" and select the file to be imported. Everything works as expected, when I'm done I can see on the server folder that the file I've uploaded is there. However under a user privilege set, it is not p

  11. Hello all - So I got a larger MirrorSync installation to run beautifully between two FMS15 server sites. Sync times are a charm. My question is what the best practice is to make MirrorSync sync fastest. Currently, our hub server is in a colocation datacenter in Los Angeles with Gigabit connection. The spoke server is in our branch office, syncing through a 100/50 Mbit connection. MirrorSync server runs in the same datacenter as the hub server. My question is whether it would make sense to install the mirror sync server at the branch office loca
  12. Did any of you write a grok for logstash or find a way to analyse FileMaker Server logs using elk( elasticsearch / kibana? ) Not really picky on the version. https://www.elastic.co/products/beats/packetbeat
  13. Good morning! I need some help getting something working. We have a company website, and we are trying to create a instant web publishing portal for our customers to login and view their open invoices. Pretty simple. We have all of our information on a FileMaker solution that is hosted with FileMaker Server 12. The problem is we can't get it to work the way we want it to. This is our idea and how we kind of want it to work. We want the have our customers create their accounts/passwords on our actual website. We will store their account information on our web server. We
  14. I have a script that works correctly on a server machine when running within FileMaker Pro 13, but raises errors when run within FileMaker Server 13. Both are running under Windows. The portion that is raising the error is an `Import Record` script step that imports from one table within a file into another table within the same file. The error returned is 100, "File is missing," so I'm wondering if this is something not supported when running a script within FileMaker Server. If that's the case, I'm thinking that perhaps exporting the records to a temporary file and importing from that might
  15. I talked to Steve Blackwell at Devcon and he suggested I post this question here. When I check my server logs on the admin console the event 661 authentication failed comes up a lot. It appears for all or most users a several times a week. No one had trouble logging on. I have posted a screen shot. I believe Steve thought it might be related to auto log on so I posted that screen shot as well (Hope I remembered that correct) Another odd thing is at the end of each line is "using "User[fmapp]" sometimes reads "Admin[fmapp]", sometimes reads "The Logon name[fmapp]". I don't have a user or ex
  16. I'm having a devil of a time getting FMS14 in good shape. I'm looking for help installing a certificate, but also including a couple of details in case they inspire any other good advice. FMS is hosting my twenty databases and my organization's employees are reaching them without a hitch. It's also true that I can see a sample database via WebDirect. FileMaker customer support has told me that that means the software is installed correctly and there's nothing else they can do to help me. It's also true that when I use Remote Desktop Connection to remote in to the terminal, I can administer F
  17. I successfully deployed SuperContainer (SC) via the Web Publishing Engine (WPE) of FileMaker Server 11 for years, on a Mac mini (2010) running OS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard), with no problems. But I ran into the following problem with Mavericks and SC: I upgraded to more modern versions of OS X and FMS by doing a completely clean installation: Formatted the Mac mini's drive; Did a clean installation of OS X 10.9.1 (Mavericks); and Installed FileMaker Server 12v6 without problems. Next, I downloaded the latest SuperContainer from 360Works (v2.896). When I double-clicked the "Mac Installer.app"
  18. Hi, I'm new to using the Plastic plugin under FMS. I placed it in the specified /library/filemaker server/database server/extensions folder, but it kept showing up as Not Loaded. I thought it might be a permissions problem, so I changed the owner, group, and permissions as follows: Owner: fmserver Group: fmsadmin Permissions: RWX,R-X,R-X. When I did this, the plugin disappeared form the list of server plugins altogether. I have tried stopping and starting FMS, reinstalling the plugin (including re-downloading it), reverting the permissions back to how they were at the beginning - but u
  19. Because the security capabilities of SC alone are far under what my application requires by law, I need something that will allow me to completely block access to all SC folders/URLs, no matter what, unless users login to each folder (URL) individually, preferably synced w/ LDAP, or at least blocked based on access to each database. I do plan on using UUIDs, but that doesn't prevent access via URL in general. I don't wan't people uploading various junk files simply because they understand how SC works. I have read that running Tomcat as the primary web server can do this, but I also see in
  20. So, the question is : What can we do to a file while it is being served ? ( and accessed by users ) Is it save to : create/change tables ? create/change occurrences ? create/change fields ? create/change scripts ? create/change layouts ? Or should this all be done off line ? It would be great if fmi could give us a rebuilder for a file... It will be great to read your feedback !!!
  21. Hi I'm running FileMaker Server 11 on OS X. I have a Windows app that updates one of the files via ODBC. If this app dies or loses network connectivity etc., the connection still shows up in the FMS Admin Console. Restarting the app just causes another connection to show up in the Admin Console. It does not appear to be possible to get rid of these phantom connections. The same happens if I write a Python script that connects to the file via ODBC. When the script exits, a connection still shows up in the Admin Console. Is there anything I can do about this? Th
